Tallinn Guide

The Estonian city of Tallinn is located on the northern coast of the country, on the shores of the Gulf of Finland. It is around 80 km to the south of Helsinki, east of Stockholm in Sweden and west of St Petersburg in Russia. The old town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the city as a whole was a European City of Culture in 2011, along with Turku in Finland. The city is Estonia's financial and business hub and benefits from liberal economic policy and has a highly diversified economy although its main strengths are in IT, tourism and logistics.

Tallinn's port offers ferry crossing to Finland and Sweden. The ferry terminals at the port deal with around 6 million passengers each year and has good facilities including shops, a coffee shop and departure lounges. In addition to dealing with passenger ferries, the port also caters for cruise ships and high speed ferries during the summer months. There are daily sailings between Tallinn and Stockholm and Helsinki and two sailings a week to St Petersburg in Russia.

Turku Guide

The Finnish city of Turku is Finland's oldest and was at one time in its history the Finnish capital, although it is now the country's fifth largest city. Little remains of the city's medieval past but through its museums the city has been able to retain a strong sense of its past with a number of archaeological exhibits on display. The summertime in Turku is a popular time to visit when the natural tendency is for people to gather around the banks of the River Aurajoki, on the many boats moored in the centre of the city, and also along the lively harbour front. The central market square of Kauppatori is also a hub of activity in Turku and plays an important part in local tourism and for the city's residents. Perhaps the most popular, and eye catching, attraction in the city is the 13th century Turku Castle, complete with its two dungeons but there is also Turku Cathedral which is regarded as one of the most important churches in Finland and contains a number of interesting chapels.
